Ryerson prof looks at homicide rates in different neighbourhoods, and looks at how they are similar, and then looks at neighbourhoods with similar characteristics but lower homicide rates. One theory is that tall appartment buildings are to blame, because they diminish the sense of community.

In the last few years, Statistics Canada has been doing some interesting studies on the characteristics of high-crime neighbourhoods in Montreal, Saskatoon, and several other cities. Some of the factors they've looked at include the age and repair of the housing stock and the concentration of bars in the neighbourhood. This Ryerson study looks like it's breaking new ground by examining not just the symptoms of a high-crime neighbourhood but also the way that neighbourhoods prevent crime.
